Guidance Document

The Guidance Document for the Canadian Organic Standards is designed to be used by organic operators, certifying bodies, and inspectors as a tool to assist in complying with the Canadian Organic Standards and for certifying bodies to verify compliance.

The primary objective of the document is to promote the uniform application of the Canadian Organic Standards across Canada. The new standards became law on June 30, 2009.

The document provides many useful real-world examples that will help users understand the intent of the Canadian Organic Standards.
